enrollment in the first month would be low. that's the experience we saw in massachusetts and experience we expect here. especially for health here, younger people. the pattern of behavior is to wait before you have to purchase before december 15th to have coverage on january 1st. we expect that pattern to play out with the marketplaces and affordable care act and the fact that the website is so challenging and problematic in the first month, means that the enrollment numbers are lower than expected. and beyond that, i don't have specific figures and i have not seen specific figures and i anticipate to release data about enrollment by the end of the week. >> but you don't have specific data. >> i do not. >> the president spoke about gas and problems with the roll out of the website that needs to be fixed. what are those gaps. >> he was referring to and i will quote. i assigned my team to see what we can do to address the holes and gaps in the law. he was talking about cancellation and concern about individuals who have had existing policies cancelled and that issue has gotten a lot of atten

-- from massachusetts is weighing in on the battle from obamacare and he zeroed in on president obama's campaign promise. listen. >> he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. whether you like the model of obamacare or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermind the foundation of his second term. i think it is rotting it away. the only way he can rebuild credibility is to work with republicans and democrats and try and rebuild a foundation. >> that troubled health care .gov website is back up and running after an over night shutdown for repairs that had a rocky rollout. meantime congress still wants answers about the flawed website and about how many people have been able to successfully enroll in obamacare. a top presidential advisor says the numbers won't be that great for the first month. >> our goal is to get as many people done as possible. i can promise you the first enrollment numbers which was released later this month are not going to be what we want them to be. we take responsibility for that and take r
